Stayed three nights.The room was very outdated but clean. Nice swimming pool area. Started each day off with a great Continental breakfast, which really helps.People who prepare this was not friendly at all. Did not like all the maid service stuff and bedding scattered outside all over in your walk way all the time.

Room Tip: next time we will choose something we can walk to the attractions,like the aquarium and the cannery...

only stayed 1 night in this hotel but wish we would have stayed longer. Way way too much to do in this area for just 1 night. My wife and I stayed in the cottage room rite next to the office, it was interesting to say the least was kinda a different style room then we are use too. Room was a bit dated but clean and comfy. All the front desk staff we spoke to (checking in and out) were really friendly and more then happy to explain where things were and how everything worked. Other staff could have been nicer didn't really interact with them but didn't seem to be too happy to be at work. Parking sucked and when I say sucked I mean we went to dinner and came back to have to park on the street in front of the hotel =(

Room Tip: I would stay at this hotel again the front desk staff and cleanliness of the room made up for all th...

On a last minute getaway to Monterey during a very busy weekend, I was on the hunt for an affordable but clean and comfortable room. I ran across some reviews of the Clarion and with much hesitation, gave them a call. For not too much more than a standard King room, the honeymoon suite was available - in room hot tub included. For around $250 on a Saturday night, we snagged it. So glad we did. The room was clean, comfortable, easily accessible, spacious and with appropriate amenities. The hotel itself is about 2 miles from Cannery Row so we spent the evening strolling through the lovely breezy little town of Monterey.

When travelling with my family, we are usually looking for rooms that are affordable, comfortable, clean, and quiet, and where the items found in the room work (TV, plumbing, clocks, lamps, internet, etc.) The Clarion is a great place for families and meets all of my criteria. The pool area is nice, breakfast was a good selection and well-maintained, the rooms we stayed in on two separate occasions were roomy and convenient. The internet service worked consistently, one of my favorite amenities. There is a very helpful and friendly staff that takes pride in making their guests comfortable. Great lodging for a very good price.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms with two queen beds have two bedrooms with a door between, and one of the two room...

I booked this hotel as a Priceline value. However, what I got in return was a 1 bdrm suite type room. Beds were most comfy. Indoor pool was a smash with guests. The breakfast room was nice but a bit crowded. Nevertheless, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would do it again.
